This depends, but for most circumstances, yes. Official Sony brand PS2 memory cards work on all PS2s, and on all games. However, not all PS2 memory cards work for every game. Some games such as Kingdom Hearts: RE Chain of Memories require official Sony memory cards (or at least, you can't use the cheap clones). You can also use PS1 memory cards for PS1 games.

You can purchase a 4 way spliter box that hooks into where you hook the controllers in. You may have to go on ebay to find one or a pawn shop. Hope this helps you!

answer 2
Well, if you look on the back of some games, it will say you can have up to 4 players. The truth is, you can only plug in 2 controlers. But if you have a 4 player game, you need to have 2 people share the controller.

Hope this helps!

If you mean by the game, you can check out the back of the box to see how many players the game allows. The PS2 has 2 controller ports. A multi-tap adapter is needed for more than 2 players.

Yes, as long as the controller contains the two joysticks. All original playstation controllers are compatible with PS2 while playing PS1 game on PS2, but you cannot play a PS2 game with a PS1 comtroller unless it has 2 joysticks. Even PS2 controllers are backwards compatible with PS1 console. These controllers are not compatible with PS3 since PS3 is wireless.
answered 4 years, 9 months ago

answer 2
Nope, the PS1 controller is a DualShock 1 controller, the PS2 controller is a DualShock 2 contoller, they won't work on eachothers systems, the PS3 controller is a DualShock 3 controller.

PS2 controllers won't work on a PS3, PS3 controllers won't work on a PS2, PS2 controllers won't work on a PS1, PS1 controllers won't work on a PS2,

Each system must have it's own system-specific controller, they are not interchangeable.

A memory card stores your progress so you don't have to keep going through certain steps again and again.

You need a memory card because if you don't have one your games will not save and you will have to start all over every time you play.

There isn't any memory in a Playstation 2. You have to buy a Memory card. Most games require at least 512 mb to even start the game.

your lense could be scrached or dirty you can use a lense cleaner and if that dont work it may be a short in the power supply thats the top two things that Ive herd of going wrong in the ps2.
if you willing to spend the money the ps3 is the way to go because if your also a movie watcher you can enjoy watching blu-ray movies and the resolution of the gameplay is outstanding. it makes the ps2 look like the N64

Yes it can play USA games and movies. It can play PS1 games also, but if you wanted to save a ps1 game on a ps2 memory card, it would not work. Again, you can play PS1 games on this system, but you'll have to have a PS1 memory card in order to save PS1 games.

Yes it plays PS1 games, but to save you need a PS1 memory card. It is the US version as well and will play DVDs.

I don't know anything about the 1700 free games? The game system is just that: A game console (No games at all)
Never heard of that. If you buy just the System you have to buy games. But the online gaming I have used in the past and doesn't cost anything, but it does require a special conector to enable the online use. (I think we got it at Walmart or Gamestop) It may just depend on where you are trying to play online, meaning different game clubs have a fee.
